Description

Hello! I graduated from UCLA in 2019 and will be attending medical school at the St. Louis University School of Medicine starting in July of this year. I can tutor math, science, and English as well as help out with test prep. I have a lot of tutoring experience in an online platform. When the COVID pandemic started, I tutored elementary school students in math. I designed engaging lesson plans and used unique games to get students excited about learning. I currently tutor a 7th grade student as well, where I ask questions and use examples to help her understand concepts. I always work to create a comfortable environment where tutees feel encouraged in their learning.
